DEBUT 1987

Professor Dexter Rabbit (or, as he's known to his friends, Professor D. Rabbit) was introduced on Sesame Street in Episode 2303 and appeared until season 20.

He's 98 years old, and knows a little magic from having previously worked with a magician. He's best friends with Garbo, and met Uncle Wally at a juggling school in the Orient. The script for his debut appearance describes his voice as "a combination of Mel Brooks' 2,000 Year Old Man and Marlon Brando."

He made further appearances in Episode 2315, 2330, 2407, 2458, 2470, and 2582.

Years later, the puppet was used as an unnamed rabbit (performed by Martin P. Robinson) in Episode 4159, anxious to have his electric teapot fixed at the Fix-It Shop before his tea party. The puppet later made various background appearances on Plaza Sésamo during season 11.
